    How to exchange USD in England? 16th Jun 17 at 11:33 AM
    I have a couple of thousands of USD and want to exchange it to GBP. The exchange rate of GBP/USD is below 1.28 but the best rate to buy USD is 1.38. This means almost 10% spread/overload. When I exchange money in other countries, the spread (the difference between buy and sell rates) is about 1%.

    Where can I find a fair rate to exchange USD to GBP.

    Or can I open a USD account or get a USD Debit Card to spend the money online?

    You don't use a company that went belly-up some years ago!
